Keeping your new luxury vinyl plank and tile floors clean and well maintained is an integral part of ensuring the longevity of the materials. Today, we will look more closely at the question of steam cleaning these surfaces and why it’s not always the best choice, so read along for that information.

Your luxury vinyl plank and tile cleaning options

Using a steam cleaner on luxury vinyl tile and plank is not recommended, even though the products offer exceptional and complete waterproof protection. But it’s not the water you have to be concerned about when it comes to steam cleaning.

A steam cleaner uses excessive amounts of heat and pressure, negatively affecting your surfaces. Therefore, even your manufacturer's recommendations likely advise against using a steam cleaner, and we do too.

For the best results, we recommend that you use a cleaner that has been created for use on luxury vinyl floors or contact us for professional cleaning options as necessary. We want to make sure your floors last, and proper cleaning is one way to ensure that happens, so be sure to visit us today for more information.
